In recent years, we’ve been hearing rumors of an updated Apple Watch with flat sides and a thinner design. When the Apple Watch Series 7 didn’t come with it, we believed it would appear this year. A recent rumor indicates that Apple has once again scrapped the redesigned design.
According to ShrimpApplePro, who has an amazing track record, the base model of the Apple Watch Series 8 will appear the same as the Series 7 with displays measuring 41mm and 45mm with the same dimensions. In addition to this, they claim that their source “does not notice any new sensors visibly.”
That doesn’t mean that the Apple Watch Series 8 won’t have any internal advancements. A temperature sensor and battery upgrades have been expected to be included in the Apple Watch, so it’s possible that there will still be major modifications under the hood.
If ShrimpApplePro’s source just stated that they hadn’t “noticed” any new features in the watch, it doesn’t prove that new features aren’t there.
ShrimpApplePro does not provide any information on the new “Pro” model, which is likely to feature the most visible enhancements, including a larger display size and a robust titanium body. According to the leaker’s informants, there will no longer be a titanium variant available for entry-level devices.
The iPhone 14 is expected to be unveiled alongside the Apple Watch Series 8 at a September presentation. There are plans to begin mass production in late August, according to ShrimpApplePro.
